Dentistry is specialised in diseases of teeth, mouth and jaw areas. Prevention is more important than treatment: caries prevention helps to hinder dental defects. But modern fillings allow repairing consisting holes and defects.

Caries, gingivitis or injuries can lead to tooth loss. They can be replaced by bridges, partial or full artificial limbs. The difference between a real and an artificial tooth is hardly detectable.

Orthodontics, a branch of dentistry, deals with malposition of teeth and jaw, which are meanwhile easy to repair.

Bleaching teeth is more a cosmetic matter. A lot of people wish to have shiny and white teeth. There are a lot of possibilities to let their wishes come true, but it should be executed by an expert.
